The world is falling apart, and reforms won’t suffice. “End capitalism” is a good start, but ultimately too simple an explanation. We need to end authoritarianism, hierarchy, property, competition, productivism, and separateness, by seeing them more clearly and talking about them. Replace hierarchy with horizontalism, property with sharing, competition with cooperation, productivism with ecological awareness, separateness with empathy.
“One gratifying aspect of our rise to some prominence is that, for the first time in my memory, we, ‘our side,’ had captured a crucial word from the enemy… ‘Libertarians’… had long been simply a polite word for left-wing anarchists, that is for anti-private property anarchists, either of the communist or syndicalist variety. But now we had taken it over.” — Murray N. Rothbard, The Betrayal Of The American Right, 2009
“Lucy Parsons was famous and infamous.

Mark Bray, author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook discusses the resurgence of the movement to counter the rise of the far-right and responds to Chris Hedges’ critique of the violent tactics used by the activists. RT Correspondent Anya Parampil looks at the origins of Antifa.
In 1933 Dorothy Day, a progressive journalist and Catholic convert, and Peter Maurin, a French peasant and philosopher, founded an anarchist-pacifist movement and newspaper they called the “Catholic Worker.” The paper was meant to be the Christian answer to the Communist Party paper, “The Daily Worker.” Not affiliated with the Catholic Church, the movement aimed to follow the Christian gospels by promoting peace—nationally and internationally—and serving the poor and homeless. It urged a culture where the scholar could be a worker and the worker a scholar. It advocated non-violent changes in the very structure of society, based on social justice and economic equality.
